    I have never been in the position of needing someone to stand up for me, and the prospect of hiring an attorney was daunting. The attorneys and staff at D’Amore Law Group put me at ease. After enduring a painful and permanent injury because of someone else’s carelessness, I was able to focus on healing and recovery. I am very grateful to Tom, Doug and the D’Amore Law Group.
